Michael Jackson Episode Removed From ‘The Simpsons’: The Simpsons episode “Stark Raving Dad” is considered one of the most iconic episodes from the show’s early run. Michael Jackson infamously provided a voice for the episode, which aired as the show’s Season 3 premiere, September 19th 1991 and is now finally confirmed to actually be him. Following the extensive allegations of sexual assault by Jackson as chronicled in the HBO documentary “Leaving Neverland”, “The Simpsons” producers have decided to pull the episode from rotation.
